Q. I've noticed that food labels list sodium content, but the numbers mean nothing to me. How much is bad?

Diet experts recommend a daily consumption of less than 2,400 milligrams (mg), which is the amount of sodium in a teaspoon of table salt. If you have high blood pressure, your doctor may advise limiting yourself to 1,500 mg of sodium a day.

MARY GILDEA MACK/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS Some of the Outreach members and the barrels that are being prepared for shipment to Sierra Leone in September. From left, the Rev. James Sandy, Linda Balliet, Mary Ellen Ogozalek (holding grandson Logan), Mary Kruzik, Steve Kruzik, Faye Hlavaty and Dorothy Kuhn.

It started with a strange phone call, laughs Mary Ellen Ogozalek. She, along with Dorothy Kuhn, is an organizer of the Lansford Catholic Parishes Outreach Group volunteers who meet once a month to discuss and work on various projects such as Prayer Shawls, hosting the AARP Safe Driver Program, Christmas Chimneys and others.

First on the home phone and then on her cell Ogozalek heard a lyrical voice asking for a call back. Needless to say, she was puzzled. It was not unusual to get a call on the home phone, but she could not understand how someone got the cell number.
